LGBT Voices Creating Change

This year the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Creating Change Conference is breaking from tradition & the State of the Movement address will be delivered by a chorus of voices rather than one. In previous years it has been the role of the Task Force’s Executive Director Rea Carey to deliver the annual speech at the Creating Change Conference, which will take place this week at the Hilton Chicago Hotel at 720 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago, IL from January 20th to 24th. Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force stated, “No one person — in this case one white lesbian — can ever speak authentically or fully for an entire movement in one speech. This is not where we are, nor is it where we are going. Our vision for the future of the movement is one that is broad, inclusive & dynamic. When we made this decision late last year to change the annual speech, I was very much inspired to do so after listening to the many voices on staff & across our movement for change. That’s why this year’s state of the movement will include a diversity of voices — featuring some of the people, as Task Force staff, who are driving our movement forward to real freedom, justice & equality for all LGBTQ people & for a changed country. We hope you will enjoy what I believe will be a very powerful speech.”. For over 40 years The National LGBTQ Task Force has worked to secure full freedom, justice & equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & queer (LGBTQ) people.
